Brett C.: Overcoming Apprehension with Great Success

Image of Brett C.Brett C. (pictured on the right) was shy when he entered Tech-Now, Oklahoma’s program within ODEP’s nationwide High School/High Tech initiative. Using the framework of the Guideposts for Success developed by ODEP, Tech-Now provided Brett with opportunities to function outside of his comfort zone. Brett was apprehensive when, after a year in the program, he was asked to work in his school’s front office. After two difficult weeks, he came to love the job. Brett, who has cerebral palsy, later attended Oklahoma’s Youth Leadership Forum for Students with Disabilities, and spoke at a governor’s conference and three statewide competitions. He received two college scholarships and now attends Oklahoma City Community College, where he is majoring in political science.
